Until recently, I didn’t know anything about personality types or tests. I had always felt like I was crazy and questioned whether or not I would ever truly feel happy in myself.
When I discovered I was an INFJ and read about it, I felt validated for the first time in my life. And then I proceeded to read everything I could find about INFJ’s to see if I could find answers to all the questions that are constantly swirling in my head.
I feel really confused about my place and purpose in the world. I have spent the last seven years working in Administration in Finance and Accounting, and towards the end I literally felt like my soul was dying. I finally piked up the courage to leave my job in determination of doing something that truly resonates with me.
Sometimes I feel like I can’t differentiate the voice of my ego between the voice of my spirit, and I am terrified of making a mistake so instead I end up doing nothing but existing inside my mental madness.
Does anyone else feel this way?
I don’t want to sound ungrateful as I have so many wonderful things in my life, but the career side of things is a missing element. The way I see it, a career is (or should be) an extension of myself so I want it to be meaningful, something that I believe in.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated
